Oprah just backstabbed filmmakers exposing Hollywood for a shocking reason

8

Oprah Winfrey built a media empire over the last three decades.

The influential mogul has the ability to make or break careers.

And Oprah just backstabbed filmmakers exposing Hollywood for a shocking reason.

More Americans are getting sick and tired of Hollywood elites and their condescension toward the rest of the country.

That became crystal clear when comedian Ricky Gervais hosted the recent Golden Globes Awards and savaged the aloof actors and actresses in attendance.

Gervais is a self-described leftist, but even he’s sick of the sneering and superior attitude of his contemporaries.

As a result, Gervais received broad support and skyrocketed in popularity, even though big media tried to paper over the incident.

This was in stark contrast to a speech Oprah Winfrey gave at the Golden Globes two years earlier when she declared “time’s up” on sexual abusers.

In true hypocritical liberal fashion, Winfrey gave aid and comfort to Hollywood mega-producer and serial sexual predator Harvey Weinstein.

In fact, Winfrey just refused to support a documentary film that focused on Weinstein’s decades-long misconduct.

According to Showbiz 411, “Weinstein put her in the movie The Butler, in which she garnered great reviews. She also got an Oscar campaign and became very friendly with the movie mogul.”

The filmmakers switched gears and focused their project around music mogul Russell Simmons.

Even though Winfrey was also long-time friends with Simmons, she jumped aboard the project.

But Winfrey recently pulled out of the project at the last minute and left the filmmakers without a champion for the project.

Showbiz 411 notes, “[N]ow Oprah has suddenly pulled out of the project, and decided not to include it in her presentations on AppleTV+.  The film will still premiere at the [Sundance Film] festival, but it now lacks Winfrey’s imprint.”

Without Winfrey’s auspices, the project might not be able to secure major distribution.

This is how Hollywood protects its own despite pretending to be our moral betters.

A similar scenario happened to acclaimed documentary filmmaker Amy Berg.

She won several accolades for a film about sexual abuse in the Catholic church, but when she made the film “An Open Secret” about sexual predators in Hollywood, the film got absolutely zero support or attention.

Ironically, the “Time’s Up” movement that Oprah Winfrey spotlighted in her Golden Globes speech essentially fell apart after leader Lisa Borders’s son was accused of sexual assault.

Do you think Oprah Winfrey intentionally tanked the documentary film?

The Queen made a shocking announcement that left Meghan Markle speechless

59

Actress Meghan Markle has made a mess of things.

The newly minted royal has had a contentious relationship with the family since marrying Prince Harry.

But Queen Elizabeth made a shocking announcement that left Markle speechless.

Meghan Markle certainly has a flair for the dramatic.

The former actress seemingly never left her profession behind and brought her histrionics to the Royal Family of Great Britain.

Rumors of an icy relationship with Prince William and Kate Middleton finally boiled over.

Markle and Prince Harry talked about perhaps moving to North America to pursue opportunities in film and television.

And Queen Elizabeth II just closed the door on their returning to the Royal Family.

In a public statement, the Queen announced that Markle and Prince Harry will be relieved from family duties, have their title stripped, and be cut off from royal family resources.

Markle and Harry wanted into independence, and they’re about to get a taste of it.

Their plan is apparently to become a “power couple” in entertainment.

Only in a culture that’s been fractured by the Left for decades would royalty choose to be a superficial reality television item.

The proclamation hits even harder for Harry because of his ties to the British military.

According to ABC News, “Prince Harry is losing his military titles and patronages including Captain General Royal Marines, Honorary Air Commandant Royal Air Force Honington and Small Ships and Diving, Royal Naval Command: Commodore in Chief.”

There’s no word yet on their entertainment prospects, but it’s difficult to imagine there being lasting intrigue.

The thing that made them interesting was their connection to the Royal Family, and they’ve traded that in for some imagined stardom.

Meanwhile, the wannabe power couple are already coming face to face with harsh realities.

Markle moved her company from California to Delaware right before the end of 2019 so as not to pay California’s comparatively burdensome taxes.

Delaware has far fewer regulations as well.

Also, Markle and Harry will no longer be allowed to jet-set on the family’s dime, and they will have to repay expenditures made to renovate their cottage.

Markle’s estranged father Thomas summed up the move of his daughter and son-in-law best:

“[The Royal Family] is like one of the greatest long-living institutions ever…They are destroying it, they are cheapening it, they’re making it shabby . . . They are turning it into a Walmart with a crown on it now. It is something that is ridiculous, they shouldn’t be doing this.”

It’s hard to argue with that.

Are Markle and Prince Harry making a huge mistake?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got busted on her global warming lie by the last person she ever expected

57

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has shown her true colors.

Not only has she called for a socialist transformation of America through her so-called “Green New Deal,” she’s also proven to be a deeply dishonest politician.

And now Ocasio-Cortez just got busted on her global warming lie by the last person she ever expected.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the most visible member of the far-Left freshman congresswomen known as “The Squad,” has been a gaffe queen.

She’s shown stunning ignorance on a host of topics, but she’s largely been defended by the liberal media.

Ocasio-Cortez has also been caught in several lies, including potential malfeasance involving campaign finance law violations.

One of her biggest lies is her push of climate change hysteria.

But one expert just smacked down Ocasio-Cortez’s arguments in one definitive statement.

Michael Shellenberger, President of Environmental Progress, testified before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology on the issue of climate change.

In the most recent election cycle, Shellenberger ran for governor of California as a Democrat, so he can’t be hit with Leftists’ dismissive smear of being “right-wing.”

Shellenberger has also contributed to The New York Times, the Washington Post, and Forbes.

During his cutting testimony, Shellenberger said:

No credible scientific body has claimed climate change threatens the collapse of civilization much less the extinction of the human species. And yet some activists, scientists, and journalists make such apocalyptic assertions, which I believe contribute to rising levels of anxiety, including among adolescents, and worsening political polarization.”

Shellenberger didn’t mention names, but he was very clearly speaking about Ocasio-Cortez and climate hysteria mascot Greta Thunberg.

Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” was nothing more than a socialist fever dream where all industry is publicly controlled and climate change was supposed to be the fear that scared everyone into giving away their rights.

Shellenberger is a proponent of nuclear energy, which is clean and efficient, but Leftists hate it.

The reason why is because the goal is government control, not carbon emissions reduction.

If they truly believed the “12 years until it’s too late” fearmongering, they would embrace nuclear energy at least in the short term, but they don’t.

The scam has been revealed.

Even Ocasio-Cortez’s former Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted to a reporter that the “Green New Deal” was less about climate change and more about an economic takeover.

The climate fearmongers should no longer be taken seriously.

Is Ocasio-Cortez’s hysteria over the climate losing steam?

Millions of atheists’ heads exploded after Trump made one announcement

88

President Donald Trump has proven himself as a hero to Christian Americans.

After eight years of Barack Obama, he is a welcomed change.

And millions of atheists’ heads exploded after Trump made one announcement.

Since getting into office, Trump has stood up for religious freedom more than any other President in history.

With the radical Left becoming as insane as they have, it has become necessary for him to fight back as they try to take away religious liberty.

And on National Religious Freedom Day he took a major step towards restoring that freedom.

He announced that he is sending directive to all educational institutions making clear that they must allow prayer in school, and that they must protect educational clubs within schools.

“We will not let anyone push God from the public square,” Trump said at the press conference.

“From its opening pages, the story of America has been rooted in the truth that all men and women are endowed with the right to follow their conscience, worship freely, and live in accordance with their convictions,” the president continued.

The new guidelines, that will go into effect on January 21 of this year read:

“Section 8524(a) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act and codified at 20 U.S.C. 7904(a), requires the Secretary to issue guidance to State educational agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and the public on constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary and secondary schools. In addition, section 8524(b) requires that, as a condition of receiving ESEA funds, an LEA must certify in writing to its SEA that it has no policy that prevents, or otherwise denies participation in, constitutionally protected prayer in public schools as detailed in this updated guidance.”

This news comes on the heels of left-wing attempts to shut down prayer within schools.

They have been trying to many years to do that, as they do not want kids to follow the word of God, which is antithetical to their agenda, which promotes the acceptance and practice of homosexuality and transgenderism, and abortion rights.

If children are raised to follow the word of God, it will be devastating to the increasingly regressive agenda of the Left.

And that’s why Trump is so dedicated to standing with Christians in America.

Do you support children being able to pray in school?

Meghan Markle just made one move that proves she’s a complete fraud

43

Newly minted royal Meghan Markle has stepped in it again.

The Duchess of Sussex wants to leave behind her responsibilities as part of the British royal family and rekindle her acting career.

But Markle just made one move that proves she’s a complete fraud.

Former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher famously said, “The facts of life are conservative.”

Leftists deal with this truism by being massive hypocrites.

They say one thing and then do the opposite.

And Meghan Markle just exhibited that with her latest move.

When it comes to politics, Markle is a wild leftist.

She preaches about climate change and cutting carbon emissions, but flies around the globe in private jets.

And now she moved her company Frim Fram Inc. from California to Delaware.

Anyone who’s had to deal with the state of California knows exactly what that move means.

California has some of the country’s most onerous tax and regulation policies, which are hostile to business.

People tolerate it because of the location, but even that isn’t enough to keep thousands and thousands from leaving the state.

And Markle is doing that with her business.

Delaware is known for being an incredibly business-friendly state for corporations.

The taxes are comparatively low, and the regulations are far less restrictive.

In Delaware, businesses do not have to publicly disclose the names of their owners.

Markle, a native Californian, can only be moving her business to Delaware because she wants to maximize the amount of money she makes, which is sensible.

But that also cuts against the progressive narrative.

Markle also slid right under the wire and filed the paperwork in late December.

According to The Telegraph, “‘You want to do it on New Year’s Eve simply because if you go one minute into the next year you would owe some taxes to California for the year 2020,’ said Alan Stachura, from financial services firm Wolters Kluwer.”

It’s all fun and games until it’s your money that’s on the hook.

Markle isn’t the only outspoken leftist celebrity to come in conflict with the rhetoric versus the real world.

After Trump announced his tax plan that raised taxes slightly on top earners, actress Debra Messing tweeted in disgust about the increase.

People on her Twitter feed had to remind her that she’s a leftist who’s in favor of higher taxes on the rich and free goodies for everyone.

Rapper Cardi B was also furious when doing her taxes and realizing just how much Uncle Sam was taking.

Many people naturally become more conservative when they get older and realize the liberal narrative they were spoon-fed was a lie.

But Markle and other Hollywood figures live in fantasy for a living, so many of them are hopeless.

Is Markle a hypocrite for moving her company to a known pro-business state while advocating policies that have turned states like California into high tax, high regulation, anti-business states?

What this anti-Trump athlete just announced about the Olympics has Colin Kaepernick grinning from ear to ear

61

Sports are becoming unbearably political.

More and more athletes are infusing their personal politics into their respective sports.

And what this anti-Trump athlete just announced about the upcoming Olympics has Colin Kaepernick grinning from ear to ear.

Washed up NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick opened Pandora’s box when he started the anti-American anthem protests.

From time to time, athletes would wade into politics before, but he took it to an obnoxious level with his despicable anti-American rhetoric.

One of the first athletes to follow his lead was U.S. Women’s Soccer Team star Megan Rapinoe.

Rapinoe, an open lesbian who’s in a relationship with WNBA star Sue Bird, is rabid leftist who’s harshly criticized Donald Trump on many occasions.

After the U.S. Women’s team won the World Cup, Rapinoe went on a D.C. tour, and specifically said she would not meet with any Republicans.

She even parroted the myth about the gender wage gap, which has been debunked for decades at this point.

Now, in advance of the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) released guidelines that prohibited athletes from making overtly political gestures.

Prohibitions from the IOC include, “[d]isplaying any political messaging, including signs or armbands, gestures of a political nature, like a hand gesture or kneeling, refusal to follow the Ceremonies protocol.”

Considering geopolitical tensions, the IOC’s prohibition isn’t surprising.  But Rapinoe was having none of it.

She responded on social media saying, “So much being done about the protests. So little being done about what we are protesting about. We will not be silenced.”

The problem with people like Rapinoe and Kaepernick is that they’re silent on the atrocities committed by authoritarian governments that align with their leftist worldview.

This has been the story with the Left for decades.

To this day, leftists excuse the horrific crimes of Stalin and Chairman Mao.

In fact, authoritarianism is alive and well in China, where it’s disallowed to speak ill of Mao.

Rapinoe is probably deluded enough to think the IOC rule is about her.  But it more likely has to do with the pro-freedom demonstrations taking place in Hong Kong.

When it comes to those protesters, American leftists have been eerily silent – or worse, sided with China.

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted support for the protesters, and the NBA came down on him like a ton of bricks.

Suddenly, Kaepernick and Rapinoe were quiet on those protests because of their partnership with Nike, who makes billions of dollars in China.

What do you think about coddled American athletes who disrespect America while ignoring atrocities committed by authoritarians governments abroad?

This lawmaker is proposing a gender law that could start an all out war from the LGBT movement

74

The radical LGBT movement is invading public schools and universities and shoving their agenda down everyone’s throat.

But this lawmaker in Arizona is threatening to derail these LGBT activists entirely.

And the law he is proposing could upend the LGBT movement and start an all out war from the radicals in the “movement.”

Many schools are beginning to appease social justice warriors by allowing students to identify as either the gender of their choice or even claiming to be a gender that doesn’t even exist.

That’s why State Rep. John Fillmore of Arizona is proposing a law that would put an end to this in an instant.

Fillmore’s law would require all public schools to only recognize two genders, male and female.

Now all hell is breaking loose.

LifeSiteNews reports:

A Republican state lawmaker in Arizona has proposed three new bills that would make the recognition of the reality that there are only two genders compulsory in state schools, on all state documents, and on birth certificates.

Rep. John Fillmore’s first proposed bill, HB 2080, would prevent any state agency, board, commission, or department from listing anything other than “male” or “female” as an individual’s sex on any document.

His second proposed bill, HB 2081, would require that birth certificates only list “male” and “female” as options for a newborn’s sex.

And his third proposed bill, HB 2082, would bar schools from forcing teachers or others to use a biologically incorrect pronoun when referring to a student. They would not be forced to use anything “other than the sex or gender pronoun that corresponds to the sex listed on that student’s birth certificate.”

Naturally, when news of Fillmore’s proposed legislation began to spread, social justice warriors, and LGBT activists began to lose their minds.

Passing this legislation would be a major blow to all of the progress the LGBT movement has made invading public schools and government offices.

If this bill passes, Arizona should expect to see massive protests and even riots from unhinged activists.

Fillmore’s law is considered to be controversial.

But it only requires that schools and government documents, like birth and death certificates, identify which of the two genders the individual is.

What do you think?

Is this legislation hateful or simply common sense?

This comedian’s defiant message to Hollywood has one group of Americans cheering wildly

24

Last weekend, admitted liberal comedian Ricky Gervais took on the Hollywood elitists and liberal hypocrites.

For his honesty and failure to bow down to the liberal demi-gods he has faced severe backlash and even death threats.

But Gervais’ latest defiant message to Hollywood has one group of Americans cheering wildly.

Conservatives all across the United States are coming out in support of liberal comedian Ricky Gervais.

While many media mavens are claiming it’s only because of his Epstein remark, they miss the mark and don’t realize it is because of his common sense support of freedom of speech and his opposition to the hypocrisy and elitism of a Hollywood elite completely out of touch with the real world.

As most Americans know, last weekend, comedian Ricky Gervais shocked Hollywood to the core.

This happened during his monologue at the Golden Globes where Gervais was host.

The British comedian and self-identified liberal Gervais railed against the overwhelming liberal hypocrisy of the entertainment world and Hollywood in particular.

And it wasn’t just Epstein that Gervais mentioned.

There were audible groans from the pampered Hollywood elite crowd when Gervais accused the room of knowing all about Harvey Weinstein’s crimes.

Since then, Gervais has been slammed with violent backlash from liberals who are furious that he would dare to challenge left-wing celebrities, producers, directors, and writers.

But, not to be deterred, Gervais is firing back at his haters in a major way, and it doesn’t appear he will be backing down.

Last Friday, Gervais launched a Twitter storm to make it clear to all that he has exactly zero regrets about his Golden Globes.

A performance that even conservatives could enjoy.

Gervais added, “If you don’t believe in free speech for people who you disagree with, and even hate for what they stand for, then you don’t believe in free speech.”

While certainly no conservative, Gervais is a breath of fresh air to American conservatives in particular, who are sick and tired of Hollywood’s pampered, partying, and politically ignorant ways.

While there doesn’t seem to be any major change coming any time soon to Hollywood.

In fact, as one Hollywood insider put it, “the only reaction more telling from the Golden Globes crowd than anger, was the utter lack of understanding of anything Mr. Gervais was saying.”

What do you think about Ricky Gervais calling out Hollywood’s out-of-touch liberal elites?

College students gave a chilling answer when asked about the greatest world threat

73

American universities are decaying before our eyes.

Free and open debate has been replaced with political correctness.

And college students just gave a chilling answer when asked about the greatest world threat.

Universities have always leaned to the Left, but they’ve now become a monoculture of extreme leftism.

On many campuses, you’re more likely to find an avowed communist than a Republican, and that goes for both students and faculty.

Students have been indoctrinated for years by popular leftists authors such as Howard Zinn to believe that every single thing America has ever done is horrible.

So it’s no surprise that college students at the New England College’s College Convention 2020 in New Hampshire last week believe Donald Trump is a greater threat to world peace than leaders of Iran, China, North Korea, and Russia.

Speakers at the event included a slate of Democrat presidential candidates and attendees were a sampling of Leftist students from across the country.

The College Fix attended the convention and asked students, “Who is the biggest threat to world peace?”

Given the choices of Donald Trump, or Vladimir Putin of Russia, Kim Jong-un of North Korea, Xi Jinping of China or Ali Khamenei of Iran, an overwhelming majority responded that President Trump is the biggest threat.

Most of these students probably don’t even know that Trump wants to pull troops out of the Middle East, and months ago, he called off an airstrike on Iran.

Meanwhile, Iran funds radical militia groups in multiple countries.

North Korea is a nightmarish Stalinist state, and China is quickly reverting to its iron-fisted authoritarian roots.

The conservative group Campus Reform did a similar experiment where they asked students to rank Trump against brutal dictators of the 20th century.

Many of them couldn’t identify Josef Stalin by picture and didn’t even know who he was.

Communist crimes of the past have been papered over, or rewritten, by Marxist historians in tenured positions within the Ivory Towers of academia.

If you don’t think this has real-world implications, one of Bernie Sanders’s staffers was recently captured on camera making apologetics for the Soviet gulags.

Universities are cranking out uninformed socialists, and it needs to stop.

Can the university system be reformed?  Or is it already too late?

Hollywood is trying to cancel this top star after what he said about Trump

33

It is essentially a crime for any Hollywood star to support President Trump.

The industry hates him so much that it is virtually impossible to get a job while being pro-Trump.

That’s why Hollywood is trying to cancel this top star after what he said about Trump.

While most of Hollywood is liberal, it has been no secret that actor Vince Vaughn is conservative.

He admitted as much in 2013, and was very supportive of the candidacy of Ron Paul in 2012.

So it shouldn’t be surprising that when Vaughn saw President Trump at the College Football Playoff game in Louisiana they had a friendly conversation.

But shortly after their interaction, a video of the two went viral online, with liberals calling on Vaughn to lose out on acting jobs over it.

Breitbart News reports:

Actor Vince Vaughn was spotted chatting with President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump on Monday at the College Football Playoff National Championship Game between LSU and Clemson, igniting a firestorm of social media speculation over the Hollywood actor’s political affiliations.

The star of Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story was captured on video shaking hands and conversing with the commander in chief in a stadium suite at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

Vince Vaughn was also seen saying something to Melania Trump before shaking the hand of Steve Scalise (R-LA) and then leaving.

A 30 second video of the encounter quickly went viral late Monday, prompting fervent social media speculation over whether Vaughn is a friend or possibly a supporter of President Trump. The video footage doesn’t feature audio of the conversation between Vaughn and the first couple.

In 2013, Vaughn told Politico in an interview that he considers himself to be a conservative.

“I do, yeah,” Vaughn told the magazine. “I’m very supportive of Ron Paul, but I’ve always been, you know, more conservative than not.”

He added: “I think that when you get older, you just get less trust in the government running anything.”

WATCH the encounter below:

Despite claiming to be tolerant, liberals refuse to tolerate those who disagree with them.

Vaughn is in a small group of celebrities who are unafraid of being conservatives.

And that is just too much for the “tolerant” Left.

Do you think Hollywood hates conservatives?
